Pomegranates the new mantra for anti-ageing

Updated: Jul 12, 2016 12:19 IST

Washington D.C., July 12 (ANI): Looks like the key to hold back ageing has finally been found.

A new research has found that ruby red fruit slows down the ageing process by prompting cells to recycle and rebuild themselves.

Amazentis SA, an innovative life sciences company, announced a collaborative publication with the École Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), demonstrating that the company's lead product candidate, urolithin A, improves mitochondrial and muscle function, resulting in enhanced muscle strength and endurance during aging.

Amazentis is presently evaluating urolithin A in a first human clinical trial with results expected in 2017.

Urolithin A is generated by gut microflora as a natural metabolite of ellagitannins, a class of compounds found in the pomegranate and other fruits and nuts.

"We are excited to publish the first data that demonstrate the effects of this gut metabolite on mitochondrial and muscle function," commented lead author Johan Auwerx.

"We believe this research is a milestone in current anti-aging efforts, which have previously focused on traditional pharmaceutical modalities, and illustrates the opportunity of rigorously tested nutritional bioactive agents that we consider to have outstanding potential for human health," he added.

The study has been published in Nature Medicine. (ANI)
